Twilling Ribbon Cards

Evening everyone, a late blog tonight as have been a busy bee all day. Haven`t been about much the last week as have been poorly :( but being poorly does have its advantages as my brain hasn`t stopped working & have had lots of new ideas. I`m loving ribbon at the moment & have been trying to think of different ways to use it, so hope you like the twirling affect i have done on the cards. The first is a card idea i had for my mum & i knew i wanted to use Kanban`s Bella Fiori kit, & i wanted to do a large card so i used an A4 piece of card & added to each side an A5 card. I matted & layered using card from the kit & one of the toppers which i added bronze & gold ribbon which i twilled over & stuck underneath. I found this beautiful verse & framed it with the edges of one of the Bella Fiori toppers, i added the word Mum (which i cut from the cricut cart `Tie the Knot`) & few feathers, flowers & a flourish & this is the end result. Really pleased so i think my mum will love it.



This card looks so pretty & came out better than i imagined, the beautiful rose topper is from the Kanban `So Feminine` kit & the background paper from woodland friends. Again i twilled ribbon (i`m sure someone in the craft world has done this before, but i have not seen it, so to me its my idea lol) A bit of bling & some flowers really set this card off



A little close so you can see the ribbon
Another beautiful topper from Kanban & this time i used A thicker ribbon with an edge to add a little va va voom, a touch of lace & some fancy flourishes, Tracey was cut from the cart cricut alphabet




Really pleased with the striking effect the black ribbon has on this card.

Wow. These are all stunning cards. Love the twirling of the ribbon. Must try this. I love the verse. Sadly I lost my Mum 7 years ago but it would be a verse I would have liked to have sent to her. Wendy. xx
